Forum: netlabels Subject: IMPORTANT: multiple usernames for one person not allowed.

Hey all,

I believe that one person has recently been signing up and posting under multiple names in order to cause controversy and advance his or her own ends. Please stop doing this. If it continues, we will have to analyze IPs of posters to determine who this is and to freeze the accounts in question.

Thanks,
Simon.

Affected threads, 8/7-10/2005:
http://www.archive.org/iathreads/post-view.php?id=38561
http://www.archive.org/iathreads/post-view.php?id=39147
http://www.archive.org/iathreads/post-view.php?id=40930
http://www.archive.org/iathreads/post-view.php?id=40953

Usernames observed in that span posting from 2 IPs possibly in Long Beach CA USA:

mellow dude 1975, DJ Cleavon Little, Little Tony Tottle, Jing Tong, Mister Lister 405, William Renquist, Marcella Q, Mrs. Smoochy Face, Marcy Bemus, Ward Burns, Morgan 23

If reading any of those threads, just read any of those posts as the voice of probably 1 individual replying to himself et al.

I'll put a pointer on each thread and that should be a wrap!

you-d better proceed with this action immediately.

the only thing they/he aim(s) at is starting a nonsense thread and direct the discussion into controverse = there is no end.

here i wanted to write some comment, but i don-t. it would attract one of those little tony-s

greetings to you all

A couple of these names are showing up in this thread http://www.archive.org/iathreads/post-view.php?id=39147 which I regretfully initiated. If I could, I would delete it, but since it has offspring I can't. I apologize for making that initial post since the resulting thread is defintely not in the best interests of the netlabel community.

That may be, but some valid concerns / stuff for operators to think about - were still raised by the other ppl that responded (myself included)... regardless of the original posters intent.

i got the same impression. especially when across the threads i noticed the same colloquial phrases repeated by two different users. i might take some time to write an article taking each of the more ignorant points in turn and rebutting them.

In a case like this, it's usually best to just shrug and move on instead. Thanks!
